Homemade Chicken Salad

I hate hate hate hate hate tuna, so as an alternative I really enjoy my chicken salad! I would always buy the cans of chicken from Costco and make it and throw it on a sandwich for a delicious and quick meal. Trying to be more health conscious, I've always wanted to make it homemade in hopes to cut down on the sodium and additives that are most likely in that can of Kirkland chicken. So today I did exactly that. It was SO easy and it makes the perfect meal for work, for the kiddos at school, or even just on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

What You Need:

2-3 Chicken Breasts (thawed)

1 Can of Low Sodium Chicken Broth

1 Can of Water (reuse the can from the broth)

Salt, Pepper, & Garlic Powder to Taste



What You Need To Do:

In you crock pot, combine the chicken broth, water, chicken breasts, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook on high for 4 hours.

Chicken in the Crock Pot
At about the 3 1/2 hour mark, test your chicken by trying to pick it up with a fork, if the chicken falls apart then it is done! Take the chicken out of the crock pot and put it into a bowl or on a plate to cool off.
Once the chicken is cool, use a fork to shred the chicken up. Add mayonnaise and mustard until you receive a creamy consistency. Add a teaspoon of water to loosen it up as your chicken may be looking a little dry. Add salt, pepper, and garlic to taste. Serve with crackers or on a sandwich.
*MCO Tip: Make a sandwich by using Wheat bread and mozzarella or cheddar cheese, broil (or use a toaster oven) until the cheese melts. Its AMAZING.
